At CollegeXpress, we’re all about connecting students with schools that match their academic and career goals. And we have a variety of ways to help you find your best fit! Exploring the site will uncover our powerful College Search tool, new College Search Map, unique Lists & Rankings, and all the advice you could ever need in our College Admission section, but there’s another OG resource you may not know about: the CollegeXpress digital magazines for the Catholic, Christian, international, graduate, and transfer college search.

All about the CX digital magazines

Your school counselors will remember the print magazines we used to send to schools across the country. We started printing our college search magazines way back in 1985! A lot of things have changed since then, including how we distribute these resources. We’ve gone green and digital, offering these valuable college search resources in a new and improved online format that you can access anytime, anywhere! Our magazines include quick introductions to our featured schools, plus top-notch articles and advice to help you with the college and scholarship search process. It’s the perfect tool to help you start researching colleges you’d like to apply to—plus, we make it easy to connect with these schools so you can get on their radar and demonstrate your interest!

What’s a featured school?

A featured school is one that we’ve partnered with to help you connect and request information quickly and easily. Every school featured in our college search magazines is one of our partners—which means they’re looking for students like you and want to make it easier for you to learn more about them. The green “Yes, connect me” buttons on any CollegeXpress featured profile allows you to request information in one click. You’ll also find all our partners based on major and school type on our Featured College Profiles page.

Digital magazine student audiences

When we went digital in 2020, we really wanted to focus on five distinct audiences because we had many partner schools looking for these types of students. Between the plethora of religious colleges in the US, the increase in international education, the value added from a graduate degree, and the gap in guidance for students looking to transfer, these resources are great for assisting students with specific needs in finding the colleges to support them.

Catholic Colleges & Universities

Are you seeking a private college education in a Catholic environment? Catholic Colleges and Universities magazine features great institutions with strong foundations, excellent academics, and an appreciation for developing the whole person, plus questions to ask during your college search, strategies to win more scholarships, and more.

High School Class of 2021

CollegeXpress has helped me with all aspects of applying for college. The website is extremely easy to navigate and gives access to so many resources. I was able to research all of the colleges I was interested in, find out any information I wished to know about, and keep them organized in a list. I've also been able to research scholarships and save them as resources for later. I've used many websites in my college and scholarship search, and CollegeXpress has by far been my favorite one to use.

My favorite part of CollegeXpress is the 800+ lists which have all kinds of hard-to-find information. These lists are helpful when I’m creating college lists, and I also use them to give students a feel for a particular college or university.

CollegeXpress helped in my journey by comparing multiple colleges for my final decision. While looking at different colleges, I was able to compare the tuition expenses and that landed me with the college that I’m currently enrolled in, Western Kentucky University. Thank you!
